Valorant is Riot Game's team-based tactical shooter. In a world where games seem to be getting absolutely huge in terms of file size (looking at you, Warzone), Valorant's download size is a pleasant surprise. It's great to see a multiplayer FPS game command a much smaller portion of the hard drive than we're used to.

If you're wondering just how big the download size is for Valorant, here's everything you need to know.

How Big Is Valorant?

Valorant's initial launcher download is less than 100M, and is the same launcher used for the likes of Riot's other popular game, League of Legends. The game's actual full size comes in at between 14 and 20 GB — positively minuscule compared to other shooters.

Part of this is undoubtedly Riot's intention to have Valorant running on as many PCs as possible. This is with a fairly reserved art style and effects, meaning you don't need a dedicated gaming rig to plant the spike, teleport behind an attacker, or rack up an ace (killing all five enemies in one round).

That's all you need to know about Valorant's download size. For more information on the game before you go ahead and install it, check out our guide on the PC Specs for it.
